### Hyperbolic Discounting: An Experimental Analysis

### CODES

Both exponential and hyperbolic discounting are independent of the amount to be discounted, y. But, in contrast to exponential discounting, preferences that display hyperbolic discounting induce declining subjective interest rates. In particular, the sub-jective interest rate associated with exponential discounting is r, a constant, while the
